    Good. All-ages, so definitely straightforward vocabulary and plot (with some good complexity in the themes and storytelling, nevertheless). This volume sees the introduction of Artemis (daughter of retired supervillains) as a Young Justice hero, a Batman and Robin subplot, and some solo features on Aqualad.

    I love how they used this comic to fill in the lost time/ missions of the characters who would be absent during some of the episodes.

    I thought I was done with archers in superhero costumes and then I discovered the amazing Artemis on the Young Justice TV show and man, she's just as amazing in the comics. I loved her kicking ass especially in issues 7 and 8. The introduction of Wally to Artemis and his entry are so hilarious, I'm glad they redid the scene in the comic, too. However, there wasn't nearly as much Wally and Artemis interaction than on the show. Still, I was very amused when Wally was annoyed by Artemis's absence d I thought I was done with archers in superhero costumes and then I discovered the amazing Artemis on the Young Justice TV show and man, she's just as amazing in the comics.

Issues 9 and 10 definitely seem like they'll come into play later and I definitely liked the conspiracy factor to it all. Issues 11 to 13 finally revealed one of the villains so those were fun and the team fighting the Clayface was quite entertaining. Probably not that much for Aqualad but hey, I'm excited to finally see Atlantis.

    A solid follow-up to Young Justice Vol. 1, Training Day is another recommended read for fans of the show. While the stories didn't strike the same chord with me as those in the original, the artwork and dialogue are still spot on.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this comic series. These comics may not be the deepest or most thought-provoking in DC's arsenal, but, to be honest, that's not what they are supposed to be: they are companions to an animated series intended for kids (even if said animated series works just as well for adults). Unlike the series, however, the comics have a bit of a harder lean towards younger audiences, though this volume stayed a bit truer to the more complex spirit of the more show.

    The second volume of the Young Justice cartoon's tie-in comic series is great fun. Greg Weisman continues to imbue the comic with the exact voice and tone of the show while getting to expand on little snippets of the Young Justice world as well as revisiting his own DC Comics past with two issues delving into the backstory of Captain Atom. The art matches the animated style while being a little looser and freer. Solid fun comics. Can't wait for season 3. The second volume of the Young Justice cartoon's tie-in comic series is great fun.

    It was great finding out how Artemis was invited to the team, but I don't like how they changed her skin tone in the book. She's supposed to be tanner, as she's half white half Vietnamese but the book makes her look like a caucasian blonde. The story of Captain Addams was a little hard to follow, but full of great twists. I also finally understand how Ra's Al Ghul keeps coming back to life. Love the series so far!

    The first one was awesome, this one is fantastic! All of the stories were so great, I literally couldn't put my tablet down (I don't have the paper copy). The Clayface story was perfect, now everything makes sense in the chapter 8 of season 1. The characters are so badass, brave, determined and caring. I love them all. It's time to start the next volume. The first one was awesome, this one is fantastic! All of the stories were so great, I literally couldn't put my tablet down (I don't have the paper copy).

    I really adored this one. I liked that it focused on Artemis' backstory and provided a lot of background of what happens between episodes or when a member is not present. Also since Dick's identity is largely kept a secret on the show and not discussed, I enjoy that him and his relationship with Bruce is explored. Solid 3.5 I really adored this one.

    Artemis joins the Team, the Team went on a military espionage and fought Clayface. It was an OK volume, nice to see more of Artemis and how she became part of the Team. The military espionage arc was really boring and unnecessary. The last was good and it tied in with the TV show itself, also brought back Talia al Ghul who was missing from the show.

    Very entertaining, even better than the first volume. I loved all three stories presented although I think the cold case (I should read more mysteries I think - loved the twist at the end) was my favorite with the Clayface story being a close second. Highly recommended for any Young Justice fan.

    There's currently a DC Comics' based hit animated series on Cartoon Network. The show is called Young Justice, and for anyone who wonders, it is NOT based upon the comic of the same name. Instead it takes elements of both the Young Justice and the Teen Titans comic series, and creates a new story taking place on Earth-16 of the DC Multiverse. The show runner is named Greg Weisman, who is known for his popular Gargoyles cartoon and comic book series. Indeed, many of the conventions and plot ideas There's currently a DC Comics' based hit animated series on Cartoon Network. The show is called Young Justice, and for anyone who wonders, it is NOT based upon the comic of the same name. Instead it takes elements of both the Young Justice and the Teen Titans comic series, and creates a new story taking place on Earth-16 of the DC Multiverse. The show runner is named Greg Weisman, who is known for his popular Gargoyles cartoon and comic book series. Indeed, many of the conventions and plot ideas of Young Justice are reminiscent of his story telling on Gargoyles. The secret villainous group called "the Light", for instance, are very reminiscent of David Xanatos from Gargoyles. Anyways, when DC Comics commissioned a new comic book based upon the animated series (as they often do with their cartoon series), Greg Weisman decided to do something different this time. You see, normally such comics only tell generic adventures in the same universe as the cartoon, but avoid anything that could be contradicted by the show. In other words, they are sort of secondary in there canonicity. Not so here. Weisman is heavily involved in the comic book as well as the series, and thus the comic and show perfectly complement each other, filling in any plot holes, if you will, in the storyline of the animated series. This goes so far, in fact, that careful readers of the comic book would have figured out many of the spoilers and "reveals" of the first season finale of Young Justice ahead of time. They also would have seen how the team and the Justice League got some of the Intel for the bad guys' plans they manage to stop during the first season. Overall, I honestly can't think of anything not to like about this graphic novel. I'll admit that the simple art work threw me off at first as I'm used to the beautiful work I've come to expect in many comic books these days. I eventually realized that this sort of made sense in that the panels on the page look exactly like the animation cells on the show. This only increases the sense of everything taking place in a shared story line, which it obviously does. Though Young Justice is marketed to a younger audience than the other DC Comics' titles, it still has intriguing and compelling plots from a master storyteller like Weisman. This makes this one of the titles most worth reading.

I'm a big fan of the Young Justice animated series, which created it's own ground up take on the DC Universe (instead of adapting any particular established title or continuity) to create a wonderfully deep and compelling narrative. It focuses on a core group of young heroes forming a covert ops team for the Justice League, draws inspiration from everything from Teen Titans to it's original namesake comic, and is one of the best animated shows I've seen in years. So with it's disappointing cancellation I'm finally getting around to the highly regarded tie in comic. Training Day contains three main stories featuring Artemis (2 issues), the team investigating an unsolved murder case from Captain Atom (2 issues), and a multi-tiered story featuring some classic Batman villains (3 issues). They are all well paced, engaging and have the expected decent amount of action. The art matches the feel of the show well and is perfect for these tales. Each story is self-sufficient in general and could be read without knowledge of the animated series. I wouldn't recommend it though, as you'd definitely be missing a lot of context. This is because this comic was written to be a direct companion to the show. Instead of unrelated adventures in the same universe Young Justice directly overlaps it's inspiration. It fills in background on things only briefly touched on in the show, follows team members absent from certain shows were doing at the time, etc. To heighten the cohesiveness, establish timelines and make things easy to follow dialog and short scenes straight from the show are used. I'd recommend watching through episode 8 before reading this trade. One other way in which it perfectly compliments the animated show is in a slightly different approach. The comic (as benefits the format) focuses somewhat more on character development than on the labyrinthine plots of the show. It fleshes things out nicely and allows both the comic and show to shine in their own ways. Overall a great supplement for fans of the titular animation, and I'll definitely be reading more. I give it slightly less of a recommendation to those unfamiliar with it, but Training Day would still probably be an enjoyable read.

    This book collects Issues 7-13 of the Young Justice comic book series, introducing three storylines set between episodes of the TV series. Issues 7 and 8 introduce Artemis before she's dropped into the team's lap. The comic's treatment of the character works. It explains a plot point from one of the episodes, establishes what's side she's on but still leaves her with enough mystery to be an interesting character.

Grade: B+ Issue 9-11 is actually a surprising story as it's a bit of a thriller, and a bit of a mystery tale as Captain Atom charges the team with investigating a Vietnam-era case. It's an engrossing tale with lots of suspects and a few twists worked in. Also Artemis does some set up work for another episode of Young Justice. Grade: A Issues 12 and 13 is an odd story involving Talia having a relationship with Matt Hagen due to Batman's qualms about her being related to Ra's Al-ghul. Hagen is an odd choice and this hampers the story which does end with a key decision for Aqualad. Grade: B Overall, this is a good book and a must if you're a fan of the television series.

    I read this issue-by-issue on Kindle (7-13), not as a reprinted volume. I love the show and am slowly catching up with these tie-in comics, though that shouldn't be hard now that they've stopped making them. Anyway, I'm not rating it "it was amazing" because it doesn't exactly aim for that. It's supplemental to the show, even written by Greg Weisman, but not crucial to the main plot and therefore hindered by that "this one's for the kids" vibe that isn't as noticeable in the show itself (maybe b I read this issue-by-issue on Kindle (7-13), not as a reprinted volume.

Still, it's easy and exciting to treat it as part of the show's continuity and to gain that slightly wider perspective into what goes on between episodes. I particularly liked issues 11-12 in this set, which tell a fully-fledged Batman story with a new origin story for Clayface tied to Ra's al Ghul and the Lazarus Pit.

    cellent! These volumes tie-in with the cartoon so I do feel like I'm missing out a little bit but still they are whole stories and becoming much more serious and intense. There are some inconsistencies with the main DC universe canon but that is the norm for these cartoons. A fantastic start with the introduction of Artemis and how she goes against her villainous parental heritage to become a hero, joining Young Justice under the guise of being Green Arrow's niece. I like her already! Then some cellent!

Then finally we have some Batman vs the al Ghuls and a unique take on Clayface's origin story with Young Justice battling the clay dude. This is a great kid's comic which should satisfy all ages.

    There are three story arcs in this volume. They are all enjoyable, but my favourite is definitely the first, in which we see how Artemis came to join the team. Batman and Robin taking on the Al Ghul's is another highlight. While the television series is enjoyable on its own, I'm finding these comics to be excellent supplementary material, great for fans of the show. By the way, if you haven't watched Young Justice yet, you need to get on that! I am so upset that it won't get another season. There are three story arcs in this volume.

    Kind of disappointed the Superboy traitor plot from last volume wasn't continued. :l I'd forgotten while watching season 2, but that was a plot thread that went absolutely nowhere. If I choose to forget it though this is still a pretty good volume. I wouldn't read it without watching the show -- it's definitely written to be a supplement, not a replacement -- but enjoyable on those terms. 3 stars Kind of disappointed the Superboy traitor plot from last volume wasn't continued. :l I'd forgotten while watching season 2, but that was a plot thread that went absolutely nowhere.

    Again, as show tie-in books go, this is one of the better ones. Some new information and some retreading on the episodes. It keeps you straight on when the stories are taking place and nothing seems to not fit. Still a solid read for a fan of the show.

    Better than volume one. These are meant to be read while watching the show, and fill in some of the adventures that happen between episodes and story arcs.

    Artemis is introduced to the team, and they get training from Captain Atom. This is considerably better than the first volume, as it actually feels more like the show. The stories have a lot more depth, its like the writer now has a handle on the characters. A good read.
